Infra2 - Den Bosch Ring Road

Den Bosch, The Netherlands

The construction consortium InfrA2, comprised of KWS bv, Van Hattum en Blankevoort bv and Mourik Groot-Ammers bv, has completed the design and construction of the A2 Den Bosch ring road project for the Directorate-General for Public Works and Water Management of Noord-Brabant. Between the Meuse River and Vught, the A2 has been converted from 2x3 lanes to 4x2 lanes. This allows through traffic to remain separate from local and regional traffic.

Drastic modifications

Through traffic between Utrecht and Eindhoven (in both directions) is now accommodated in the two main roadways, which are free of interchanges and have a maximum speed of
120 km/h. Local traffic and traffic to and from the A59 East and West use the parallel lanes, where the maximum speed is 100 km/h. All of the bridges and viaducts along this section have been widened and the Empel and Hinthem junctions have been modified drastically. Application of noise-reducing asphalt and the construction of new noise barriers have reduced the noise nuisance to the surrounding area.


The modification of the A2 Den Bosch ring road was implemented from September 2006 to the end of 2009. Throughout the construction, 2x3 lanes remained available and single lanes and interchanges were only made temporarily unavailable during off-peak hours.
